[php function=1] Per NAR in 2010 the average age of a first time buyer was 30.

50% of the buyers were first time buyers.

In 2011 the average age of a Realtor is 56.

Does that 26 year difference matter?

Nobu Hata is the incumbent President of YPN which stands for Young Professionals Network.

In my interview with Nobu I had a chance to find out what makes YPN and their members so special.

I was also interested in who the membership consists of and whether or not there are enforced age restrictions or access.


YPN sounds like a great organization on a number of levels as I learned during my chat with Nobu.

How important is bridging the age and technology gap? YPN thinks it is critical.
